I don’t alert you to every recall there is out there, but this one seems to make sense for my readers because the recall affects products sold at stores like Whole Foods, Trader Joes, Wegmans and more. I know that I shop at those stores because they carry a good variety of organic foods, and I suspect many of my readers do, too.


So here’s the information. Late last week, the FDA posted that GH Foods CA, LLC was voluntarily recalling various products containing yellow onions distributed to retail supermarkets. All of the products being recalled contain onions from Gills Onions, and they have the potential to be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes.


According to the FDA, “healthy individuals may suffer only short-term symptoms such as high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea. Listeria infection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women.”


So far, there have been no reported illnesses due to the products, but the recalled products should not be consumed. They should be destroyed and discarded.


The list includes many fresh vegetable mixes, pico de gallos, dips and prepared foods. Brands affected include Delish!, Albertson’s Generic Label, Garden Highway, Marketside Natural, Pacific Coast, Raleys, Safeway Farms, Signature Café, Sprouts, and Trader Joes.


According to The Huffington Post, stores and regions affected by the recall include some “Whole Foods, Trader Joe's, Weis, Publix and Wegman's stores across Arizona, California, Colorado, Illinois, Montana, New York, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Texas, Utah, and Washington, plus Canadian provinces Alberta, British Columbia and Ontario.”


The complete list of recalled products can be found on the FDA’s website. Questions can be directed to GH Foods at 1-888-449-9386 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
